Rosemont Press gains production control and savings with Muller Martini Presto saddle stitcher

Press release from the issuing company

Deer Park, New York - Rosemont Press, a commercial printer that produces an array of different printing projects for customers in many industries, has installed a Presto saddle stitching system from Muller Martini. "We did not have any stitching equipment before the Presto," says James Reardon, President of Rosemont. By bringing print finishing in-house, Rosemont has increased the control it has over its projects, enabling the company to keep tighter reigns on production schedules as well as quality. In addition, Rosemont is now able to save considerable money both by lowering the cost of outsourcing its stitching and also by reducing the shipping fees associated with transporting product back and forth to outside finishing houses. Another benefit is the versatility that the Presto stitcher brings to print production operations. "We can now handle a greater variety of projects," continues Mr. Reardon. The 9,000 cycle per hour Presto saddle stitcher is engineered for small to medium size run lengths and is a sturdy and dependable investment. Presto can handle an extensive assortment of different size books, encompassing standard products ranging in size from 12" x 14 3/8" to 3 15/16" x 5 11/16". Presto operates in 1:1 or 1:2 modes, providing the capability to run difficult signatures or to maintain high speed productivity when loading bulky projects. Furthermore, Presto features automated menu-guided PLC controls and easy touchscreen operation. With Presto, make-readies and changeovers can be completed quickly, enabling faster job turnarounds while allowing more diverse projects to be scheduled in a shorter amount of time. Before purchasing the Presto saddle stitcher, Rosemont Press also looked carefully at competitive stitchers in Presto's performance range. "The Presto offered the best value and capabilities in its model class," says James Reardon. And, "Muller Martini has the reputation in the industry for service; we're extremely satisfied with the entire Muller Martini experience...sales, support staff, the install team...it's the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship." To meet the requirements of growing operations, Presto offers expansion up to a maximum of 6 twin feeders. Other benefits of the Presto saddle stitcher include Muller Martini flying stitching heads to assure precise stitching and to reduce wear, as well as a Semko side caliper and missing stitch detector technology to further ensure optimum quality. The Presto saddle stitcher also features an in-line three-knife trimmer along with an efficient Apollo compensating stacker...and it offers the advantages of a high/low folio, gripper and suction opening, and flat loading feeders.
